McKenzie Waterfalls/Clear Lake

July 11, 2004

Five folk in two vehicles drove to the Sahalie Falls parking lot on a clear but not to warm day. The falls and rapids on the McKenzie stretch were dramatic as always. We crossed the highway and picked up the Clear lake trail clockwise and stopped for lunch at the Lodge. Three of us then moved ahead leaving a slower twosome to follow—and leaving them the map. Big mistake. The leader misinterpreted a junction sign at the east end of the lake (previous trips had gone counterclockwise) and got three of us lost for a spell and a few more miles of hiking than anticipated. Still, the weather was pleasant, the views fine, and the company good. Enjoying the trip were obsidians Mary Ann and Tom Holser, and Ed Lichtenstein (leader) and non-members Polly Curtis and Doug Hintzman—who were good sports about the extra miles.
